Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi has moved the trial of Azeez Fashola a.k.a. Naira Marley till February.

The music star is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on an 11-count charge of conspiracy and credit card fraud.

Naira Marley pleaded “not guilty” to the charges when he was arraigned on May 20, 2019.

In October 27, 2021, Augustine Anosike, the second prosecution witness (PW2), concluded his examination-in-chief.

The forensic analyst made revelations about several card numbers extracted from the artiste.

The court adjourned till November 30, 2021 for cross-examination but the witness was not available.

Prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, said the witness was absent on “compassionate grounds”.

“I got information at about 9.30am while still in the parking lot of the court this morning,” he explained.

Defence counsel, Olalekan Ojo (SAN) lamented the delay, saying the prosecution ought to have given sufficient notice.

Justice Oweibo adjourned the continuation of trial until February 16 and 17, 2022.
